A man was struck and killed by a vehicle last night near 7th Street and Packer Avenue in South Philadelphia.
The body of the victim, identified by a friend as Sam Yee, remained covered with a blue tarp about 11 p.m., more than two hours after he was hit by a car about 8:52 p.m.
"He was a number-one guy," said Vu Vo, who said he worked with the victim at nearby Procacci Bros. Sales Corp. at Front Street and Packer Avenue. "He just did his job and went home. He's just a good guy."
